Ms. Zainab

Great Outdoor Space

Experience is so important when working with young people! Growing up in a blended family with lots of siblings and cousins, I’ve been surrounded by children of all ages since I was very young, and now have two kids of my own. Caring for children is truly like a second nature to me and I just cannot imagine doing anything else! My home daycare is a place where kids feel comfortable enough to be themselves and ask for what they need. We are a family, one that learns and grows together. The bonds that we build as the days go by are so special, and every child and family I work with means so much to me.


Ms. Jequetta

Late Pickup

Daycare programs are so essential for working parents I met so many parents who were in desperate need of quality care for their children so they could work to support their families. In fact, I was one of those parents! It was difficult to find coverage for my three girls with my non-traditional schedule, and I want to offer help to others who find themselves in that same position. I am so happy to be able to open my home to children and support families in my community at the same time.


Ms. Daniel

Early Intervention Expertise

Children and parents love Ms. Daniel’s daycare for its small-scale, personal feel. Fully licensed by the state, her program focuses on infants and toddlers, and the mixed-age range helps children learn to socialize in a small group setting. Parents often prefer home daycare when looking for options that are closer to home, where they can develop a long-term relationship with the provider. Many come to see the provider as an extension of the family, leaning on them for advice on all sorts of parenting questions. Check out Ms. Daniel’s full profile and take the survey to see if she is a good match for your family.


Ms. Chelsea

Bilingual Daycare

Caring for kids is second nature to me – I helped raise my sibling, babysat for families in my neighborhood, and worked at my aunt’s family childcare program. All those experiences made me realize how to relate to kids, and how much I enjoyed caring for them! The thing I love most about what I do is building young children up and boosting their self-esteem through positive attention and care. When children feel love for themselves, enough to be who they are – that is a beautiful thing, and my daycare is a way for me to encourage that.

Let’s find a really good daycare for you

Get your own recommendations based on your preferences, daily routine, and what matters most to you.


Your family is unique to you, but some of your questions might not be. 😉 Here’s what most parents want to know when starting out.

What is NeighborSchools?

Hey there, nice to meet you 👋 We’re a new-ish startup that helps new-ish parents find daycare.

We know how hard finding good child care can be - especially for first-time parents. But really good care is what gives you the peace of mind to go back to work and feel confident that your child is getting the stimulation, socialization, and support they need to learn and grow.

So we created NeighborSchools to make this piece of parenthood a whole lot easier. We say “easier” because, let’s be honest, it’s still a big thing to figure out, but working together we can help you find some good options, understand the whole process, and choose a program you’ll feel really good about.

Most first-time parents don’t know exactly what they’re looking for, so we created a simple survey that will ask you questions about your lifestyle, your daily routines, and your preferences for child care. We’ll then share 3 personalized recommendations that we think might be a good fit. We’ll also give you a timeline that maps out when we would suggest you start touring programs, choose a daycare, and pay a deposit to secure a spot. Your timeline is based on when you want to start care - so you set the pace, and you decide when you’ve found the right match.

Nope. Our daycare recommendation service is free for parents. The other half of our business is helping these small-scale daycares with software and services that handle all their administrative tasks, like online contracting, payment processing, and licensing requirements. Before NeighborSchools, services like these were only designed for large corporate child care centers, and part of our mission is to level the playing field for small, independent child care programs. That’s why we picked the name NeighborSchools - we’re all about making child care more personal, more human, and more equitable for the incredible individuals who do this work and care for our children.

Generally, if you’re here, you’re ready. The survey lets us give you 3 recommendations to consider, but it’ll also help you better understand what factors to consider, and what questions to be asking right now. It’s simple things like where you live, your child’s date of birth, when you want to start care, and if you have any preferences around program philosophy or language of instruction. If you’re planning 6+ months ahead, it’s a great way to get started, and if you’re hoping to start daycare in the next 2-4 months, it’s definitely time to get started. Click here to start the survey.

Each program has a limited number of spots for each age range, so we need to know your schedule and child’s age before we can share availability. The survey covers these basics, as well as factors like drop-off and pick-up times to make sure that recommended programs fit your daily routine. Once we know your child’s age and schedule we can share rates and costs as well.

More questions? Text, email, or - we’re here to help.

We’re online Monday - Friday from 8am to 6pm Eastern.
